When it comes to men's sweater patterns, guys can be hard to please. They do seem to like classic, simple sweaters, with the occasional stripe or cable thrown in, though. I scoured Interweave's men's knitting patterns, and I think I've found four designs that the man in your life will love.
They're all collected in our new eBook, Men's Knitting Patterns: 4 Free Men's Sweater Patterns.
The Surf Stripe Raglan
by Christine Lorin is a men's raglan sweater pattern with a fun stripe pattern. Worked in the round from the bottom up, this sweater takes its interest from a guy-geared set of colors.
In Terry's Pullover
, Carol Feller features lattice cables framing a V-neck. A gentle shawl collar and ribbed sleeve detail create masculine elegance, and a rustic but easy-care yarn, seamless knitting, and interesting charts make a great project for wearer and knitter. If your guy likes men's Aran knitting patterns, this one has that touch of texture that he'll love.
In Rhapsody in Tweed
, Kathy Zimmerman has combined wide and narrow open cables with mini-cable ribs, playing them in a rhythmic pattern against a reverse stockinette-stitch background. This is a men's cable knit sweater that will stand the test of time.
Hana Jason's Woven Bands Pullover
is a sure winner. It's worked sideways in one piece from cuff to cuff. Linen stitch adds a simple, straightforward embellishment to collar, cuffs, and yoke. There's just the right amount of detail in this sweater.
